After ten long, twisted, weeks there is finally a winner for Big Brother Canada Season 3. And how.

Of course, this being reality television the finale was a two hour show the first ten minutes alone dedicated to recapping the season thus far with dramatic voice overs from the three remaining HGs. And it wasn’t until the last 5 minutes that anything of real importance was revealed.

Well, I shouldn’t say of any importance. We did get down to the business of declaring a final in a fairly timely fashion. Continue reading…

Big Brother Canada ends next week. So if you were watching last night and did some quick math you might have realized that they were going to need to throw out another Twist, Twistos sponsored or not. And so, even though they said the last Twistos Twist! was the final twist of the season we ended up with another one. Double eviction night! Again! Continue reading…

We’ve all been one corner of this particularly hellish triangle. Take two best friends, add in a significant other and lay down an ultimatum. Them or me. Already it’s a hard choice, but throw in the prospect of $100,000 and it becomes impossible.

Which is where we find our houseguests this evening… Continue reading…

#BBCAN3 ep 24 – Hell, Heroes & Jalapenos

All I want to do is talk about the Mad Men finale. And gossip about the Mad Men finale. And gush about the Mad Men finale. I want to speculate about what would have happened if we saw them in the 70s. And that kiss. THAT KISS! But instead I’m going to talk about Big Brother Canada, Sunday’s other thing that happened that most of you won’t watch until later. (sidenote: if you’d rather talk Mad Men, specifically Stan’s ass in those jeans, hit me up on twitter @katarnett)

Suffice it to say that the tables have indeed turned, as they have a tendency of doing in this game…. Continue reading…

If I was being paid to advertise for Twistos I might make a comparison that there are two sides to the Big Brother Canada Twistos Twist!

But they’re not.

So what I will say is that there are good and bad aspects of every Twistos Twist! they’re throwing at the house this year. We can all agree it’s made for some very interesting television, which ultimately is the show’s main objective. But I for one am glad they’re done. Continue reading…

Triple. Eviction. Night.

No one could have seen this coming. In the biggest TWISTOS TWIST! of the season (or of any season anywhere) tonight saw three people hit the bricks. One of which was in tears. If you haven’t watched it yet don’t read any further because I’m about to spoil it for you. Continue reading…

bbcan3It’s Tuesday. I figured by Tuesday I would be able to drum up something clever to spin about the show. Something that transcends the nothing much that happened on Sunday & Monday’s episodes. And yet, here I am on Tuesday. Stalling. Contemplating pouring another cup of coffee. Updating facebook about “Dad Bod” in comparison to Magic Mike XXL and then searching iTunes for Ginuwine because once one get’s Pony stuck in their head one must listen to the entire song.

And then Bell Biv Devoe’s Poison shuffled up on my playlist.  Continue reading…

#BBCAN3 ep 17 – Marsha, Marsha, Marsha! (A Hat Tip to Production)

News / Comments Off on #BBCAN3 ep 17 – Marsha, Marsha, Marsha! (A Hat Tip to Production)

bbcan3Two days ago in my Kentucky Fried Veto post I said “I almost feel bad for Production this season. Almost, but not quite, because they haven’t brought back Marsha the Moose and we’re five weeks in!” Well, I take it all back. Because Marsha the Moose has returned! Yay Trevor Boris! And boy did she return in one hell of a fashion. We’ll get to the “news” but first I think it’s time to pump Production’s tires a bit. Continue reading…

bbcan3Last night one of the people who has followed all my Big Brother Canada recaps (possibly the only person?), Sam, compared the cast’s behaviour this season to high school. Sam hit the TWISTOS TWIST nail on the head. It’s exactly like that. Or like what MTV’s The Real World has become. Horny 20-somethings falling back on cliques, getting drunk and making out.

#BBCAN3 ep 15 – The Best Lie is None At All

Television / Comments Off on #BBCAN3 ep 15 – The Best Lie is None At All

bbcan3The two worst things that a person can do while in the Big Brother house is a) have a big ego & b) tell a big lie. Gossip, backstabbing, and failed coups will not damage your game as much as those two things. And when the two are combined? Someone is about to go down. Spectacularly. Continue reading…

News / Comments Off on #BBCAN3 ep 13 – “I Want Your Blood On My Hands.”

bbcan3Julius Caesar was a military General, author, and politician. He was the first Roman to invade Britain. The founder of the Empire. A self-proclaimed King and ‘dictator in perpetuity’. A man who formed an alliance that ran things in Rome for years.

Caesar was stabbed 23 times by a group of 60 men and bled to death on the floor of the senate. A execution planned by his best friend Brutus.

#BBCAN3 ep 11 & 12: In and Out and Back In

News / Comments Off on #BBCAN3 ep 11 & 12: In and Out and Back In

bbcan3The biggest mistake anyone can make in the Big Brother house is thinking they’re safe. It’s the equivalent of running upstairs or saying “What’s the worst that could happen?” in a movie. And as any film fan knows, just when you think the bad guy is gone for good, they’ll pop back up and make your life hell.

Which brings us to the “Thanks to KFC!” Twist that carried over two episodes… one of the people evicted so far is coming back. And they want blood. Continue reading…

bbcan3

We need to have a little talk about Love. Or rather “I Love You”. Those three little words that are supposed to carry some kind of meaning. Some long lasting deep connection. At least when one person is saying it to another person. Unless you’re in the Big Brother House. Then “love” is thrown around and misused the way “literally” has literally lost it’s meaning. (I see you Newsroom fans, and I understand your pain.) Continue reading…

bbcan3I guess it was bound to happen at some point. The burnout. It’s all hot and heavy for the first three weeks and then… well… at some point you have to come up for air. And much like the current BB Showmances, the show took a breather tonight. Actually it sort of yawned. Continue reading…
